Seems 'ol Sidmo actually does care what folks think.
He sure made that evident.

How's it going so far Reilly? Still hanging?

Yeah I want you to think. I dont want to live in a society of morons, although between you Lickylovers and Trump's people it seems that I am. To clarify, I dont mind people agreeing with me, in fact I like it. BUT. I dont care if you dislike me, for any ridiculous reason you might have. I dont care if you ignore me. I don't care if you attack me. It only makes you look more stupid, if that's even possible

Skid Mo says; "I dont want to live in a society of morons,"

That was sidmo's 293rd post about not giving a sh#t.

Sidmo, I'll bet you one hundred american dollars that you will be unable to prevent yourself from responding to this post.

Ready, go.

I was talking to Sidmo. He says he’s not responding to your post. You owe him a hundred bucks.

As I don't reply to his post tell him to send my C-note to charity. He owes me now, and if he doesn't donate that money he'll be a liar. Then that guy whom I will not name nor respond to and Licky will have their dishonesty in common. Licky began this thread on a lie, so he will be in good company.

The buck stops in the left seat. Nobody was holding a gun to his head.

B737 Max? How come it’s Indonesians and Ethiopians crashing ‘em? Guess what? There have been a number of identical incidents here with airlines I will not name but it was NBD - they had pilots who knew how to fly.

And the 737 max isn't the first instance of a commercial airplane crash where the crew didn't have the skills the turn off the autopilot, grab the controls and fly the plane when required.

There is rumor Airbus hacked/sabotaged Boeings software on those planes which caused the crashes.

The malware in the software prevented a manual override.

When Airbus introduced auto-throttles in the early 90’s there was an epidemic of crashes in the third world by yahoo pilots who didn’t know which mode they were in. They drove ‘em right into the ground fat, dumb, and happy, as the saying goes. This is just the same. That doesn’t excuse Boeing for not telling the airlines that they had added this ‘enhancement’. That is just another example of corporate arrogance. They put these features in so they can sell these planes to countries who have pilots that have no business flying these planes. That Ethiopean pilot was still at TO power when they crashed. Are you kidding me? And his ‘co-pilot’ had 200 total hours! 200 hours shouldn’t get you into the right seat of a tuk-tuk, let alone a B737!

As the legendary Licky last posted on Aug 23, 2018, we breathlessly anticipate at least one final, incandescent, superlative tome to fittingly close out the saga, running since May of 2005.
Does this suggest the running battle herein contributed in some manner, to the demise of the Supertopo universe?
The disturbing portion of Chris's explanation for the termination of the forum, "increased potential costs in the future, both in time and legal costs, due to litigation related to inappropriate posts by a minority of forum members" should send shivers down the back of anyone who champions freedom of speech. I would like to know more details regarding what litigation was involved, as I would imagine the forum is only offering a, well, forum, for the free interchange of ideas and opinions; it is not directly fostering libel or slander and so it would seem to be insulated from such actions. Info Wars it ain't.

Everyone blames the pilot but consider the conditions he was flying under.

So, what about the book? And how are we going to know when it's out?
